Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Peniche, Portugal your home away from home

The Leiria district lies in the centre of the Costa de Prata, and the attractive town of Peniche is situated in the south of this district, on a rocky peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. The town was originally an island, and only joined the mainland in the 16th century. Peniche has long been an important fishing port, and is home of the some of the best seafood restaurants in the region, if not in the whole of Portugal, as well as some fantastic surfing beaches.

Things to do in Peniche, Portugal

Thanks to its coastal location, seafood is big business in Peniche, with a number of the town’s restaurants specialising in this type of cuisine. Tuna, crayfish and sardines are three of the most common items you will find on the menus, and the resulting dishes are a far cry from the tinned products found on supermarket shelves.

If you prefer to stick to self-catering, the local market if the best place to head to pick up some bargains. The fish here is extremely fresh and great value for money, and you can also pick up fruit, vegetables and lace products – the latter of which are another local speciality.

As with many Portuguese towns and villages, the focal point of Peniche is the town square. Here you will find the baroque Misericordia Church and the 16th century fortress, which has a dominating presence in such a small town. There are also plenty of shops, cafes and bars dotted around this area, so you will not find yourself short of things to do.

The beaches of the Costa de Prata are just a short distance away, with Baleal offering great surfing, and Cabo Carvoeiro the top choice for scenic views out over the ocean. Kite surfing and wind surfing are also popular on the beaches around Peniche, taking advantage of the powerful winds coming off the Atlantic. A good range of beach bars, cafes and shops can also be found around the beaches, especially at popular Baleal.

                                                                                                We spent 2 weeks at the Pine Villa as a family of 4. The villa is extremely large and spacious with lots of outdoor space for the children to play. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything a family could possibly need, large seating area in the main living area plus additional seating in the kitchen/sun room. The pool was huge, with a safe shallow end for the children and deeper end at the opposite end of the pool. The villa is positioned about 35-40 minutes walk from the beachfront so is quite a walk (if you listen carefully, you can hear the sea). This is the second year running that we have stayed in the resort and the beachfront now has the addition of an ice cream parlour which the kids love. Praia del Rey beaches are some of the most beautiful we have ever seen and are relatively empty. Swimming though isn't recommend due to the rough waves of the Atlantic. The cleaning and maintenance company were excellent. Paula, who had overall responsibility for all of this could not do enough for us and we can't thank her enough for doing everything she could to help us to have a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The pool and gardens were also kept regularly maintained. There was only a few minor issues with the villa which didn't detract from the overall enjoyment of our stay. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings then this is the place for you. Don't expect shops, bars etc within walking distance although there are restaurants etc at the nearby Marriott hotel and a small shop and lovely restaurant down at the beach front. A car is definitely recommended. Big supermarkets are within a 20-30 minute drive where you can stock up. Overall, would thoroughly recommend.

As a family of four with two children, we could not wish for a better holiday home. The house is clean and really well equipped with everything you could possibly need. All the rooms are light, comfortable and spacious with a high quality finish. Having free WIFI is also a great bonus. The location of the house is perfect. Situated right next to one of the pools is really convenient and the gardens around the house are really well kept. The children loved the pool and despite us being there in August it was never overly busy. Any queries were always quickly answered plus there was also lots of helpful information from restaurant recommendations to information about the numerous facilities available at the resort. The area around the resort is fantastic with some great beaches and restaurants. You definitely need a car if you want to explore. We have loved our time here and will be back next summer. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
